So It's my Birthday :)

I have had a wonderful day :D a very very very wonderful day :D I spent most of it stitching!

Photos of that soon but presents first :D
 I didn't get anything stitchy but I think my mum said something about helping frame Sampler Aux Fleurs which would be wonderful!

I got a couple of books :D The new J.K. Rowling and a Terry Pratchet (not a discworld but still awesome) a couple of music books and some headphones so I can play my piano without everyone hearing it, which is great for practicing in the evening.

My sister gave me three pots full of gorgeous plants. Full of purple flowers and pretty colour, also  chicken I don't mind in my garden.


Also very exciting I have a Banana Chilli growing!

 Which will be very yummy when I can finally pick it :D It has a long way to grow. Though if my chickens had their way I wouldn't have any left as they love to get into my gardens.

So onto what you are actually here for ... my stitching.
For some reason I felt extremely excited to work on Afternoon Tea. I have done all the black and green on the second page and all I have left is the corner of the chair.

Before
After
So so so close to a page finish but I have a little bit of confetti to get the rest of this done, and so reddish colours. I love the thought of more colours, something different than green, brown and black.

I also finished another penguin over the weekend and started another one.

and an angel singing Christmas carols...

Not quite as colourful as the party penguin series but I love the penguin anyway. Lots of penguins :D

Happy Stitching :D
